Sport offers entertainment, passion, and it appeals to all demographics.
Associating a product or service with a sport can reap huge benefits and supporting the Grovedale Tigers can be an excellent method of increasing brand awareness.
Our season is played over six months of each year, and can offer continuous advertising opportunities over this period.
We are also supported by an incredibly loyal and passionate supporter base and believe that our supporters extend that loyalty to the team sponsors and can offer an extended network through friends and family.
Some sponsors support our club as a charitable donation and for others it is a form of advertising. Either way, it's a mutual relationship that pays off for both our sponsors and our club.
A sponsorship of our club, can offer the following benefits:
- Increase awareness of your product or services. Each of our sponsorship packages has benefits available for the sponsor and you can select the ones the appeal to you. This could be fence signage, website advertising, company name on uniforms, etc. Through a sponsorship, your brand will be in front of the sports market of parents, coaches, program organisers, players and fans.
- A welcomed form of advertising. Many traditional ways of reaching customers are failing as they begin to tune out to advertising. Sports sponsorships are a positive and engaging way to market a brand and players, parents and supporters like to see the companies that are supporting local sports.
- Help keep the cost of junior sports programs low. As the costs associated with running a sporting club continue to climb, it is becoming impossible for player membership fees to cover all of the costs associated with running our club. It is through the support of our sponsors that we can provide additional resources which can help keep membership fees stable. With lower fees, more families are able to afford to sign up and that means more children being able to receive the many benefits of sports.
- Outstanding value for the dollars invested. A sponsorship of the Grovedale Tigers offers great value for money. When comparing the cost of other marketing outlets like print or radio advertising, sports sponsorships can be a great value and a smart option to include into the marketing mix.
- Build goodwill. Companies that sponsor local sports programs make a positive contribution to their community. Overall this can evoke a community wide feeling that a company understands the impact and importance of sports for their community. This feeling can instill loyalty among a business' current and future patrons.
We know that sponsorship from a local business to a sporting team goes a long way to offset the rising costs of sports. But what you might find is that your sponsorship also goes a long way to strengthen the bond between your brand and our community.
